MONTES LIMITED SELECTION
Pure Pinot Noir heaven from the famed Casablanca Valley. This wine has 6 months of ageing in French oak and a very soft filtering. Aurelio is proud of this wine’s strong varietal character and great complexity. A little darker than typical Pinots, it has a deep ruby color. The aroma, however, is classic Pinot Noir, with strong hints of violets and berries. A very satisfying wine with a long, smooth and elegant finish. Decanting a few minutes before serving is recommended.

Wine and Food Attributes
Delicate, nice acidity, pepper and strawberry.
Limited Selection Pinot Noir is a delicate and feminine Pinot with bright acidity that will be a beautiful match to duck especially with a fruit based reduction. Seared tuna with spiced such as coriander and black pepper will increase the perception of the spiciness of the wine.
